Submissions for Poster Presentations 2019 

The Down Syndrome Medical Interest Group (DSMIG-USA®) Annual Symposium will be on Friday-Saturday June 28-29 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention center in Pittsburgh, PA.  We are inviting submission of posters to be displayed at the DSMIG-USA® Symposium. You must register for the Annual Symposium if you are planning to display a poster.

You can find information about the symposium and registration on the University of Wisconsin CME registration page 

REGISTRATION opens on March 25th

We also hope that by having a more social venue for the exchange of information and experience that this will be a fun-time as well. We are asking presenters to set-up and display their posters on Thursday night June 27th prior to the social reception planned for that evening. This will give us maximum time to appreciate your work.


You may wish to consider submitting:

  • New clinical research findings 
  • A critical review of the literature. We are especially welcoming of topics concerning Regression and Adult Health
  • A case presentation-especially if related to one of the Symposium topics
  • A new program initiative or informational update    

This year we are again soliciting both Research Posters and Informational Posters 

Research Posters Data which is acquired using a research design including clinical trials, cohort studies, chart reviews, literature reviews, surveys, case series, etc. We are anticipating that a number of research posters will address Adult Health Care as DSMIG-USA continues to work toward the development of Adult Health Guidelines as discussed at the 2014-18 Symposia. These posters will be displayed together under their own theme.   

Informational Posters Descriptions of new initiatives, program updates, special projects and other announcements or updates, which do not use a research design, will be considered under the theme of information sharing. These informational posters will also be displayed together under their own theme.
